Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • The present invention relates to a composition for topical application. More particularly, the present invention relates to a composition for topical application capable of dissolving the corneal layer of the skin at the surface of the skin acting as a barrier to prevent the invasion of foreign matter from outside the body and capable of preventing the leakage of humor etc. from inside the body and which promotes the absorption of a medicine from the skin. The present invention relates to a composition for topical application suitable for releasing a bioactive agent through the protective outer layer of the skin where it is applied and to the underlying tissue or the systemic circulation. Here, the term bioactive agent means a "skin agent effective for the skin" or a "treatment agent effective for the organs where cure is needed". The term "skin agent effective for the skin" means a chemical substance which has a beneficial topical effect when applied to the skin and has beautifying properties (for example, through protection of the skin against external factors or through improvement of the external appearance) or therapeutic properties (for example, through alleviation of the severity of a skin disease).
  • The term "treatment agent effective for the organs where cure is needed" means an agent which enters the systemic circulation and has a therapeutic effect when administered through intravenous injection, intramuscular injection, oral administration, rectal or buccal routes, and other various routes.
  • BACKGROUND ART
  • As the methods of administration of a medicinal ingredient, oral administration, administration by injection subcutaneously, intramuscularly, and intravenously, administration to the mucous membrane in the rectum or mouth, etc. are used in the past. Among these, oral administration is most general. However, in the case of oral administration, the medicinal ingredient is absorbed in large quantities in a short time frame, and therefore, it is difficult to control the concentration in the blood. Further, the absorbed medicinal ingredient sometimes loses its efficacy due to metabolis in the liver at the time of its first circulation. Further, in the case of an irritative medicinal ingredient, its administration easily causes side effects such as damage to the stomach or intestines and has numerous other problems. In recent years, to alleviate these side effects and problems, external preparations designed for transdermal administration have been developed. However, even with these external preparations, sufficient transdermal absorption of the medicinal ingredient is often not obtained and it is difficult to say that the objective has been sufficiently achieved. That is, the surface of the skin is called stratum corneum epidermidis skin and has the biological functions of preventing the intrusion of foreign matter from outside the body and preventing the leakage of humor from inside the body, and therefore, there was the problem that a sufficient transdermal absorption could not be obtained simply by mixing a medicinal ingredient into a substrate used in the past for external preparations.
  • To improve these problems, in recent years various keratolytic agents for promotion of transdermal absorption comprising keratolytic agents have been proposed and have been mixed in substrates of external preparations as a matter of routine. As such agents for promotion of transdermal absorption, there are known for example, dimethyl sulfoxide, dimethylformamide, dimethylacetamide, methyldecyl sulfoxide, etc. These cannot be said to be sufficient in terms of the effect of promoting transdermal absorption, safety, or feeling of use. Contrary to this, Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 58-15910 describes the combination of cineole and a medicine, while Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 63-77825 describes the combination of cineole, a nonionic surfactant, water, and a medicine so as to improve the safety and skin permeation of the medicine. Hifuka Kiyo (Dermatology Abstracts), vol. 89, no. 2, pp. 267 to 271 (1994) reported on the use of limonene in a mixed solvent of water and ethanol as an absorption enhancing agent for lidocaine, while Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 63-208536 disclosed a technique of using as effective ingredients one or more types of anionic surfactants and one or more types of a surfactant other than an anionic surfactant having a nitrogen atom in its moiety. U.S. Patent No. 4,411,843 proposed the enhancer of transdermal absorption by an amine oxide and hydrophobic to hydrophilic medicines, while Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 5-148158 deemed that the barrier to transdermal absorption was a two-stage barrier mechanism of not only the stratum corneum, but also the layer of living epidermal cells, discovered that N-lauroyl sarcosine was effective for the corneal layer and β-carotene and/or allantolactone for the layer of living epidermal cells and proposed to solve the above problems using the same. However, even with this, a sufficient transdermal absorption cannot be obtained.
  • Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 61-85496 discloses the use of cineole and lauryl diethanolamide as a washing agent for textiles, plastics, metals, etc.; Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 1-144495 discloses a detergent comprising a surfactant and terpene improved in rinsability for apparel, eating utensils, housing, hair, the body, etc.; and Japanese Unexamined Patent Publication (Kokai) No. 2-182793 discloses a washing agent comprising an alkylglycoside, an anionic surfactant, terpene, and a 3-isothiazolone derivative and with a high safety for apparel, the kitchen, housing, hair, and body, but these do not have any descriptions of the transdermal absorption of the compounds.
  • DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION
  • Accordingly, the object of the present invention is to solve the above problems and provide a composition for topical application which is superior in the effect of promotion of transdermal absorption of a medicinal ingredient, which is satisfactory in terms of safety and feeling of use, and does not require consideration of a two-stage barrier mechanism.
  • In accordance with the present invention, there is provided a composition for topical application comprising at least one surfactant having a nitrogen atom in its moiety and at least one compound selected from the group consisting of cyclohexane and the derivatives thereof, cyclohexene and the derivatives thereof, and cyclohexanone and the derivatives thereof.
  • In accordance with the present invention, there is also provided a composition for topical application further including at least one alkyl sulfate.

The resulting solution was then held constant for 10 hours so as to polymerize to obtain a methacrylic adhesive substrate with a solid content of 35% by weight.
  • Example 2-1. Transdermal Absorption Agent
  • 0.3 g of a tetrahydrofuran solution containing 0.175 g of dimethyllaurylamine oxide and 0.175 g of 1-methyl-4-isopropenyl-1-cyclohexene and 24 g of ethyl acetate were added to 100 g of the adhesive substrate solution obtained in Reference Example 2-1. This was then homogeneously mixed to obtain a transdermal absorption agent solution.
  • Example 2-2. Tape Agent
  • 0.7 g of a tetrahydrofuran solution containing 2.1 g of indometacin was added to the transdermal absorption agent solution obtained in Example 2-1. This was then homogeneously mixed to obtain a skin external application. The skin external application was coated on a release sheet comprised of 38 µm thick polyethyleneterephthalate film treated by silicone so as to obtain a thickness of the ointment layer after drying of 80 µm. The coated layer was dried at 60°C for 30 minutes. Next, a 34 µm thick support comprised of a polyethyleneterephthalate-ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer laminate film was placed over the top surface of the ointment layer to prepare a tape agent.

  • The same procedure was followed as in Reference Example 2-1 and Example 2-2 to prepare a tape agent except that the 100 g of the adhesive substrate solution in Example 2-1 was augmented by 0.3 g of a tetrahydrofuran solution containing 0.175 g of 1-methyl-4-isopropenyl-1-cyclohexene and 24 g of ethyl acetate which were then homogeneously mixed to obtain the solution of the transdermal absorption agent.
  • Performance Evaluation Test (Tape Agent)
  • The back of an 8-week old male Wistar rat was depilated. A circular (1 cm diameter) test piece of the tape agent was adhered to the depilated location. This was peeled off and recovered after 24 hours. The number of repetitions was made six times for each tape agent. The recovered test pieces were extracted by methanol. The amount of the medicine remaining in the tape agent was measured by the high pressure liquid chromatography method. The difference between the initial amount of the medicine in the tape agent and the amount remaining after the test was used as the amount of transfer of the medicine to the skin of the rat over 24 hours. The ratio of the amount of transfer with respect to the initial amount of the medicine was used as the transdermal absorption rate. Table 2-1 shows the results. Table 2-1
